Comorbidities associated with overactive bladder.


Overactive bladder (OAB), defined as symptoms of frequency, urgency, and urge incontinence, that occur singly or in any combination in the absence of local pathologic or metabolic factors, is a highly prevalent disorder with an unknown etiology. Few risk factors for OAB have been elucidated through epidemiologic studies, and even less is known about the contribution of OAB to other morbidities. An overview is provided of the impact of OAB on other problems now known to coexist with OAB including falls and fractures, urinary tract and skin infections, sleep disturbances, and depression.
